Clark County commissioners and representatives from the American Lung Association turned the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign turquoise in support of National Women’s Lung Health Week. Lung cancer is the No. 1 cancer killer of American women and we all must do more to raise awareness of this deadly disease and support life-saving research into new treatments and better methods of early detection. Today, only 18 percent of lung cancer cases in women are diagnosed during the early stages of the disease. This is the fifth anniversary of National Women’s Lung Health Week, also known as Turquoise Takeover. Turquoise is the signature color of the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative which works to raise awareness of lung cancer. The Lung Association encourages everyone to learn about lung cancer and talk to their doctor if they are concerned about their risk. More information is available through the association’s website at www.Lung.org. The Welcome sign’s light bulbs, which are usually yellow, surround the border of the sign. Like the famed Las Vegas Strip, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign is in unincorporated Clark County.
